Yeah, so, I love to play this game with myself in which I try to remember where I was a year ago. Luckily, I write a blog so I can easily look it up.

A lot has changed in a year …

A year ago, David and I spent an amazing day at Ocean Beach. I consider that day as one of the happiest of my life. I still smile when I think about it. It seemed so carefree, and we were so happy.

A year ago, David bought me a claddagh ring from Ireland. From that day on, I pretty much moved into his apartment in Burlingame while we started apartment hunting. We didn’t want to be apart anymore.

A year ago, I had no idea that I had breast cancer. My biggest worry was the fact that I was concerned that I wasn’t fitting in at my new job.

Today, I just got back from an awesome Ethiopian lunch with my two good office buddies, Jennifer and Paul. I’m certainly not worried about fitting in.

Not only did I learn that I had breast cancer a few months after that day at the beach, but I beat it. I lost my left knocker in the process, but really it’s a small price to pay if you think of the alternative.

Today, I still wear that claddagh ring, but on my other hand I wear an engagement ring, and I’m a mere 15 days away from our wedding day. People keep asking me if I’m nervous. I am not nervous at all. I am counting the seconds until I marry my mighty, mighty good man.

I'm a writer/mocker/goober/mother in San Francisco who likes to drink beer, shop, laugh and make other people laugh, podcast, watch old movies, feed my unhealthy obsession with pop culture, kick breast cancer's ass, wear orange and root for the San Francisco Giants, participate in general jackass-ery, talk about TV, eavesdrop on strangers' conversations, make nerdy “Star Wars” and “Simpsons” references, and post personal things about myself on the web for all to read, which makes me some sort of literary exhibitionist.
